The Comet C/2012 K1 meets NGC 3726 |

Location of photo
Belecin near Leszno, Poland, Europe
Date/Time of photo
21 May 2014, 10.30-11.30 UT
To take my photo I used Takahashi FSQ106ED with SBIG 11000M and LRGB filters.
Taking photos on 21 st of May from the N 52 latitude is a little tricky, because there is no astronomical night. The photo is a composition of L 7x5min and RGB 3x3min. At the end of session Moon was also raising, but the comet was high and the sky was excellent.
